Change the owner of a Program

Copper Contributor



I am setting up a project and program structure to allow some of our leadership to have an overview of what's happening in projects.

I set a lot of this up under my account but would like to change the ownership of the programs to the leader involved. I can change the "manager" but not the owner. How do I change the owner?

Launch your preferred web browser and navigate to the Project Center page in PWA. Click the name of a project whose Owner you want to change. At the top of the page, click the Task task to expand the Task ribbon. In the Task ribbon, click the Edit pick list button and select the In Browser option to check out the project for editing. At the top of the Quick Launch menu on the left side of the screen, select either the Project Details option or the Project Information option. Click the Browse... button to the right of the Owner field. In the Pick Resource dialog, select the name of the new owner for the project and then click the OK button. In the Project ribbon at the top of the screen, click the Save button. In the Project ribbon, click the Close button. Click the OK button in the Close dialog to close and check in the project in question. Hope this helps.
Thanks for this Dale, will this work for Programs as well as Projects?

I'm just waiting for access to the PWA, might take a couple of days for that to be approved so apologies for the delay in reply/testing.

If by a "Program" you mean a master project, then yes, the process will work for the Programs as well. Hope this helps.
